Review: A Field in England will make you question your sanity

We… uh… still aren’t sure what to think yet about this one. At this risk of sounding shallow, we still maintain that Ben Wheatley’s A Field in England has one of the coolest posters we’ve ever seen. It also sound like seeing this movie after you dropped acid or taken any other hallucinogen might be something you deeply regret before the movie is over.

 

Ben Wheatley’s A Field in England is shot entirely in black and white, creating his most gorgeous looking film to date that can be equally as frustrating as it is breathtaking. Wheatley’s latest film is a wickedly insane trip into a bizarre field that may or may not be one you’ll want to visit. 1648. During the English Civil War, three soldiers and a scholar find themselves away from a battle in a mysterious field where O’Neil, an Irish alchemist, forces them to help him search for a perhaps-magical treasure.

‘A Field In England,’ ‘Witching & Bitching,’ and organ trafficking doc to screen at Fantastic Fest

Here’s some notable and recent additions to Fantastic Fest 2013.  We weren’t sure we could describe A Field In England (by the director of Kill List and Sightseers,Ben Wheatley) as horror (or even what sub-category under our ‘Cross-Genre’ category to put it under, we settled for a few); watch the trailer and you’ll see what we mean. The poster art is pretty damn cool though, we’ll give it that. Of all three, the David Cronenberg -narrated documentary Tales From the Organ Trade should be the most horrifying and disturbing …and we’re pretty sure we’re not alone in our opinion.  Alex de la Iglesia‘s Witching and Bitching sounds like the most entertaining of these (and that title helps it hit the ground running); check the Related Articles below for the trailer.
